The folks of the KPFA Apprenticeship Program (producers of the show Full Circle) were asked to submit radio pieces that was a geographical reflection of a place they had been. While most of the group chose to cover locations outside of the United State, my mind couldn’t stop thinking about the first place I like to go when returning from a trip. In this piece, I reflect on how the view from the Lawrence Hall of Science has welcomed me back home to the Bay Area and has helped remind me about what I love most about this place.

This piece originally aired on March 25th, 2011 as part of the program Full Circle on KPFA 94.1 FM.

I went and talked to the folks from the East Bay Bike Party in September of 2010 to see what the ride was all about. Here is a collection of voices and sounds from that night. The theme? Wild West. There is another ride that is taking place tonight, November 12th meeting at 7:30pm at the San Leandro BART station. Cover your booty cuz the theme is pirates!
